Happy Thursday! In case you’re already thinking of the weekend, I’ve got some ideas for you:
On Saturday, August 28th from 12 - 3 pm, The 3rd is hosting an End of Summer Picnic.
From their Facebook page:
Time flies, and now we must say goodbye to summer and hello to a new school year! That's right, school is about to be back in session, and we want to celebrate the end of summer!!
We also want to send our students back to school fully equipped to learn. Bring school supplies to donate and you'll get a free bag of popcorn for your generosity!
We will also have the amazing artist @Melroyart, who will be creating community artwork that you can contribute to! How dope is that?
Can't wait to see you at The 3rd for our End of Summer Picnic on Saturday, August 28th, from 12 pm - 3 pm.
Location: The 3rd 10215 Wincopin Circle Columbia, MD 21044
This is a free event but I am pleased to note that Oakland Mills’ own Althea’s Almost Famous will be there providing her locally acclaimed Jamaican food for purchase.
If you’ve been longing recently for the Lakefront to be a happening place, stop by.

Up next, at the Chrysalis, “Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed, The Rock Experience.”
The show, presented by the Drama Learning Center, will be presented twice: Saturday and Sunday at 5 pm. From the IAT website:
Join Drama Learning Center as they bring Mo Willem's classic story Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed to life!
Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed: The Rock Experience is a rock 'n roll parable with a significant message for today's audiences, based on the hit children's book by Mo Willems. Wilbur and all his fellow naked mole rats in the Tunnel have always been, well...naked. Wondering what other possibilities are out there, Wilbur discovers a love for clothing and style. When word of his new passion turns the Tunnel upside down, he proves to everyone that there's no need to be just like everyone else.
A special lesson and rock show all in one, Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed has energetic songs, quirky characters, and a story unlike any other.
Tickets are free but you must register through Eventbrite.

Last, but definitely not least, a reminder that you have (counts on fingers) just five more days to complete the Community Equity Audit (survey) from the Howard County Office of Human Rights and Equity. I wrote about it here. The more people who participate, the better picture the results will give of our community. Since it alternates between multiple choice and short answer, you will be able to give them your “two cents” about the issues.
Don’t miss your chance to give them the benefit of your perspective. Click here to participate.
